A new two-wheeler

Posted by: Dave In: Colorado|Misc|Travel

I’ve always wanted a motorcycle. So, about two weeks after my knee surgery I visited the Harley Davidson dealership and picked out a red 2010 Road King.  I’ve been riding it for the past 3 weeks and love it. It’s pretty heavy (nearly 800lbs with a full tank of gas) but it handles extremely well […]

Posted by: Dave In: Misc

This funny awareness test is brought to you by my cousin Sooz (thanks for the suggestion). I was totally fooled. Take the test. -Dave

Home again, home again, jiggity jig.

Posted by: Dave In: Misc

I’m back in Houston after a great time in Indianapolis.  I got to see some old friends (John, Greg, Scott) and take in all the crazy sites that make GenCon the premier nerd-fest that it is. Well, it’s time to pack away my chainmail bikini until next year.  Hope you all enjoyed the photos. -Dave

Happy 4th of July

Posted by: Dave In: Misc|Vacation

In order of importance… 1. Day off of work. 2. BBQ with friends. 3. Beer 4. Laughing at the silly British red-coats in 1776 who thought they could defeat a bunch of scruffy coonskin-cap-wearing hillbillies. Little did they know, our hillbillies are particularly stubborn. (Just like the one running our country.) -Dave

You’ve just won a servant

Posted by: Dave In: Misc|Productivity

You’ve just won a servant to do ONE household chore for you for free for the rest of your life. What do you choose? (post your comment below) I’m leaning toward laundry or bartender. -Dave

What’s that line about the one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest? Or was it the long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs? Regardless of the cheesy analogy, I’ve been slammed at work over the past few days. My boss is out of town and so is one of my designers. Funny enough, this […]

Wisdom from Carl Sagan

Posted by: Dave In: Communication|Misc

“It is of interest to note that while some dolphins are reported to have learned English — up to fifty words used in correct context — no human being has been reported to have learned dolphinese.” – Carl Sagan

Houston during the holidays

Posted by: Dave In: Current Affairs|Misc

Picture, if you will, crazed and glassy-eyed throngs of holiday zombies driving gigantic SUVs and lumbering for a single narrow parking space between a Jaguar and a BMW 7 series. Somehow, le-mum-du-football is backing up her Chevy Suburban like she has a CDL and is used to handling the big rigs. Her kids are sedated […]

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
